The crash occurred around 6:45 a.m. Monday, Feb. 11 when a northbound garbage truck swerved into the southbound lane of Route 59 striking a small sedan head-on, Ramapo Police said.

The truck pushed the car into a parking lot adjacent to Route 59.

The sedan's driver, of Warwick, was extricated by Tallman, Hillburn and Suffern Fire departments. He was taken by Ramapo Valley Ambulance to Hackensack Medical Center in critical condition, police said.

The roadway was closed for a couple of hours as police investigated the incident.
